In the past, if you made the mistake of not entering an invite code, Uber would not help you out. You snooze, you loose kind of deal. But, Times have changed. So, if you are wondering how to get a referral bonus after not entering an invite code?
I’m going to show you how to retroactively apply an Uber driver referral code in 5 steps.
In order to receive your sign-up bonus you must complete these steps within 15 days of being activated and ready to drive for Uber.
Referral Bonuses vary city to city, as well as the trip requirements to receive the reward. You can find that out by visiting your local Greenlight Hub Uber office or by sending them an email.
First thing you should do is find out what the referral bonus is in your city. This kind of information I wouldn’t know because Uber doesn’t have a public list of all the bonuses.
You will need my name, email, and phone number.
For the phone number you will have to send me an email, as I do not want that public. You can contact me by using the form below.
Title the email “Retroactive Referral” So that way I know what the email is about.
Once you have gathered all the information required, you can sign in to your account and Report a missing referral.
In the Uber Partner app, you can go to Account> Help> Payments and Rewards> Driver Referrals> Report a missing Diver Referral.
You should come to a form the looks like the one below. Fill out the information and hit submit.
You are all set! Just wait for Uber’s response letting you know that the bonus will be added. Here’s a screenshot of Uber’s response when I recently helped another new Uber driver receive a referral bonus.
How Long Does It Take To Receive Your Referral Bonus?
Once you have completed the requirements for your Sign-up bonus, it usually only takes 1-2 pay cycles(You’re paid weekly) to receive your referral reward.
What If You’re Been Active Longer Than 15 days, Can You Still Get The Bonus?
If you’re 6 months late on asking, I doubt you’ll get it. If you’re only slightly past the 15 days, Then I don’t think it would hurt to still try. You never know. Maybe Uber will give you the bonus anyways.
